JW Marriott
Room 201-202

This year, the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) and Fitbit collaborated on a unique project. Aimed at entities that collect health and wellness data, the project has developed preliminary guidance for conducting internal research in a manner that honors user privacy and dignity.

This dynamic session will include the project's two primary investigators, Michelle De Mooy, CDT's Deputy Director of Consumer Privacy and Shelten Yuen, Fitbit's Director of Research and Development. Through a visually engaging presentation, they will offer details on the project goals, methodology, findings, and analysis, as well as present the final guidance recommendations.
